Pros: Very quiet. Peaceful. They kept a heated ski room in the basement for your skis. The staff were all very friendly and helpful
Cons: not having an actual shower stall
Location: great location. 3 min from the train station. You do not hear any traffic. Walk outside the hotel and feel like you become 'one' with the Alps.
I cannot say enough good things about the staff at the hotel. Traveling single, I had a lot of questions, and the staff at the desk fielded them all and were very helpful. The hotel is conveniently located about 3 minutes from the train station, so you do not have to walk far. The morning breakfast offered was a great way to start your day. I did eat at the hotel restaraunt one evening during my stay. The food was delicious. (I am more of a simple fare kind of person, so Iate in bars for dinner in town) However, I would return in the evening and have an after dinner coffee in the lounge. The only 'negative' is the bath. I am used totaking showers. You are offered a nice, deep tub. (great if you want to take a bath) There is a hand held shower attatchment, but manuevering and changing hands while cleaning made for a mess. Other than that, I was very satisfied with my stay. If I come back to Grindlewald, I would stay at the Schweizerhof again.

Perfect place to enjoy variety of Swiss Alps

Posted 27-Oct-2010
We like to hike and did three including the long hike at the Jungfraujoch(mandatory). Lauternbrunnen Valley leisurely stroll back to town from the waterfall(take the bus to the waterfall) but the best was gondola from Grindelwald to First and then hike to Grosse Scheidegg. have a nice meal at the restaurant and then hike down to Oberer Hotel or just catch the bus. Great way to end our trip to Switzerland. Trains are the way to go for sure. no rental car needed for our 10 days around Switzerland.

Never return again!

Posted 07-Oct-2010
The assign seating for breakfast and will not change it, regardless! The rooms are not worth the price we paid and should not be given a 4 star. THe lobby was updated, along with a few rooms, but the rest is aged and outdated! Would not return. Staff was not flexible nor were they helpful.

hotel is close to train station and is well kept with large rooms, some with a fantastic view on the south. Pool is spectacular, indoor with a great outdoor view.

beautiful spa hotel

Posted 04-Sep-2010 on Hotels
Outstanding space, wonderful location -- I called a taxi from the train station and was told it was just a few steps away...it was. The spa services were great and were easy to book last-minute. The breakfast buffet, which was included in my excellent rate, was amazing -- a wide array of cheeses, freshly baked bread that was still warm, cold cuts, eggs, bacon, many different teas to choose from, lovely fruits etc. etc..The chef's meals were pricey but exquisite. Overall, probably the best hotel I've stayed at in Europe for a very reasonable price.

Cute little family owned hotel in the heart of the Alps.

Posted 11-Aug-2010
This hotel was very conveniently located, right in the heart of the Alps, and very close to the train stops. We took the half-board plan, with breakfast and dinner included. Breakfasts were very good and hearty but dinners became a bit boring until one of the waiters told us about the vegetarian menu. Best bet. Chambermaids were very stingy with soaps and towels. We had to keep asking for refills and new towels just about each morning. Charging for coffee after a dinner meal, which was included in the cost of our room, was very cheap. But overall, views from some of the rooms are outstanding and we did, for the most part, have a very pleasant time here. Would probably recommend.
